Brooklyn Nets Betting

The Brooklyn Nets title chances will drastically increase if Kyrie Irving decides to play. But for now, there has been no light at the end of the tunnel in that situation and the Nets are moving on without him. James Harden will fully take the reigns as the team’s starting point guard and he will be tasked to put Kevin Durant in his best spots. Wing players Joe Harris and Bruce Brown are expected to be at the end of Harden’s assists-draining three-pointers. This team will have LaMarcus Aldridge returning from his medical problem and add Paul Millsap in the frontcourt rotation that includes Blake Griffin.

Players to watch: K. Durant PF 35 GP 32 GS 33.1 MIN 26.9 PTS 0.4 OR 6.7 DR 7.1 REB 5.6 AST 0.7 STL 1.3 BLK 3.4 TO 2 PF 1.6 AST/TO 26.44 PER

Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Milwaukee Bucks had a glorious season last year capturing the NBA championship and this team looks to show that it was not a fluke. Giannis Antetokounmpo is still at the middle of his prime and he has proven help from Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday. They will have a healthy Done DiVincenzo manning the shooting guard position which they lacked last year. Brook Lopez and Bobby Portis will be sharing minutes at the center position and will ease out the defense on Antetokounmpo. George Hill, Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton compromise the bench mob for the Bucks.

Players to Watch: G. Antetokounmpo PF 61 GP 61 GS 33 MIN 28.1 PTS 1.6 OR 9.4 DR 11 REB 5.9 AST 1.2 STL 1.2 BLK 3.4 TO 2.8 PF 1.7 AST/TO 29.24 PER
